and informed on the issues that affect every one of us .

a place you could go to regularly for information and would want
to refer others proudly.

Share a lifetime of your experience and skill helping

elderly and disabled Veterans in our community.

VETS Helping VETS promotes voluntarism, particularly for
veterans who need help.   If you are someone who wants to lend a
helping hand, this is for you.   

We are not talking about fixing a roof or adding an addition on a
house, but rather someone to help with some yard work, change a
few light bulbs or fix that door that won't close right.

Many elderly veterans in your area need a few minutes a week
and sometimes just a few moment of your time just to talk and see
that someone cares about them.

As we get this program off the ground, understand that we will
have a few rules applied and of course, volunteers will have to be

Chapter 16 will facilitate our efforts with taking applications from
volunteers, providing us with liability insurance and making sure
the seniors who request assistance truly need it.   Many seniors
are still able to live in their own homes and get by with just a little
help from us.

If this is something that you can lend a hand doing every once in
while, let us know.

Once they find that you are eligible to participate, you will be on
our list to help out.

Thanks  from one veteran to another !!
